Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: The Burden of Being Jerry

David Gans is such a douchebag. Man reading this made me want to puke. Here's a guy that made his all his money, his (dubious) fame, and his career directly off the back of Jerry Garcia and the Dead scene. Now barely a year after his passing we see Gans writing this exploitive garbage. What a sense of entitlement this guy has, what a joke. He writes as if Jerry OWED him tapes and interviews for his radio program or something. It wouldn't surprise me a bit if Jerry's self imposed retreat into heroin was as much due to vultures LIKE Gans, sucking off Garcia's tit until there was nothing left to give.

I'll never forget meeting Gans at a local music festival about ten or twelve years ago. I had the audacity to inadvertently interrupt him by asking a question while he was talking to someone else, and the look and reaction I received was as if I had just let out the stinkiest, smelliest fart directly in his face. I was BENEATH contempt in his eyes, it was obvious from the reception I received. Pfft what a dick.
